Ideas Factory: 5 ways to live longer

IDEAS FACTORY: Today’s topic is one that is vital to all of us, but most us get wrong.

How do you get the best out of your health?

How do you extend your life, but still have a good quality of life?

Dr David Agus, one of the world’s leading oncologists, told Neil Mitchell five simple ways to maximise your health:

  • Movement over time: sitting for five hours a day is equivalent, on a health basis, of smoking a pack of cigarettes
  • Diet: focus on real food
  • Get uncomfortable: stimulate your brain by changing your routine
  • Be aware of medical advances: advocate for them if you need them
  • Collect your own data
